8eini-WeekIj|r dminicle. LANSINGBUEGH, OCT. 15, 1864. T hi ! C anada feisTiiB,;^The Canada; thistle, execrablej forever, and to be de­ tested^! hateful to sight or touch, did not come iirom Canada, but from Europe/ it has a malignant vitality. Its roots creep under ground. The vexed farmer has to fight them as one does guerrillas, one by one. Linnseus pronounced the greatest pest on earth, in Sweden. Pr. Barlington, in his history of {weeds, has given to this species the natne cur­ sed thistle. Few botanical terms will be pronounced more heartily. This is the very thistle-that came up to punish our first parents. It carries judgment and punishmen’t with it, both to man and beast. To have these thistles on a farm without|effort at exterpation, ought to be as disgraceful as to have vermin on the body. Now is the time to cut them down wherever they appear^-in fields and by the roadside. Never allow them to come to seed^as they fly upon “the wings of the wind.” F eom M exico . —^We have inteligence from Havana to the 8 th, and from Mex­ ico to the 26th ult., ’vera Cruz to the 1 st. Itis reported that 500 French and a 1000 Mexican troops had attacked 4000 Mex­ icans, defeated them, took twenty can­ non, killed and wounded 500, and blew Up the reihainder of the artillery. It was* also reported in Vera Cruz on the 1st, that Matamoras had been occupied by the French. Governor Vicario is reported to have taken Chilapa and On Thursday night the express passen ger train for Wheeling left Caniden sta­ tion at 9.15 o’clock,,with the U. S. mail and Adams’ express, under charge of conductor Sebutt. The train ran on time until it reached a point near Kear- naysville, between Harper’sFerfy and Martinsburg, when the locomotive, in consequence of the removal of a rail, ran off the track, and the cars were i brought to a stand still. The ground on each side pf the track is quite level, and the engine neither upset or injured. The rebel Moseby appeared with a mounted corps esti­ mated at from one to two hundred,who commenced robbing the passengers, among whom was Mr. Cole, general viz; $19 and a gold watch. Many passengers lost their watches and the contents of their wallets, pocket- books and their boots and hats. Among them was a company of emi- «.\peoted to take Chifanceago, and thus open communication with Acapulco. grants, who did did not lose much, for the reason, that their baggage was left behind in this city. After the thieves St. Peter’s Church in Rome will c tain 54,000 persons; Cathedral o f Milan, 37,000; St. Paul in London, 25,000; St, Sophia in Constantinople, 23,000; Noti T)ame of Paris, 13,000; St. Mark of V« ’pfee,7,0OO. The Haverhill Gazette-says the shoe business in that town is at a stand still. Orders are being countermanded, and manufacturers are doing nothing; some of them have closed cntii itirely. The de dine and fluctuations 5 in gold have brought.business to a stand still. A certain Scotchman, who is not a inember of the Temperance Society, be­ ing asked by a dealer to purchase some ' .fine old Jamaca rum,. dryly answered, “ToTo tellll youou tlie truth,th, sir, I cauna say “ te y the tru sir, I * I’ni very fond o f rum; for if I take main than sax tumblers its very ,apt to gie a. body the headache.” To make S teel ekom S crap I ron .

The crusible is now with­ draws aaditscontents'poUred into ingpt molds, forming cast steel. . abii Only sixty-five in a thousand marry, says Dr. Hubbard, and out of this num­ ber three are divorced, eight run away, fourteen live in open warfare, about thir­ ty are indifferent, and only ten are re­ garded as happy. 1 W ashington , Oct. 12.—Chief Justice , Tanney died to night at eleven o’clock- after a few days illness. ;; FROM MISSOURI.
